Reflection: Joy Our Words Can Influence How We Feel - Section 4: Closing the Loop


This was such a fun and exciting lesson for me to watch. It was one of those lessons where students made wonderful connections to the lesson and were then able to apply it to their own definitions. Their word choices were so personal and their descriptions of the effects were so heart felt that I knew a connection to value of words stated in the poem had been made in their own writing- Yeah! Love it when a lesson is so effective!
